The Birrin are a sentient hexapod species from a planet approximately the size of Venus. This individual resides in the tropical region of their world, bordering the uninhabitably hot equatorial zone many birrin call the 'Kiln'. Low employment, high temperatures and generally harsh conditions mean that narcotic use is high among many of the population here.
This birrin, after ending a work cycle and
with no further hive duties, uses and deals in most of the local low end
narcotics. The three clasped in the beak offer an enjoyable combination
of flavours when partaken together. Other mixes are stored in plain
view under a strap on the head for sale or later use. As there is no
substance control in this region, they can be shown in plain sight.
accessories include a wrist mounted multimedia device, which feeds
headphone cables to the auditory receptors at the tip of the upper two
eyestalks; the device was likely traded illegally, or purchased from a
wholesale shipment moving from the deep water docks on its way inland.
The Birrin are part of an ongoing project, see my gallery for more.
